The most popular SQL database in the most popular mode only offers atomicity but not durability.
The fact that it remains the most popular despite that says volumes about what peeple need (as opposed to want).
People ask for durability when they need atomicity - but that's because, as you've said, usually developers don't know what they need (they usually know what they want, but that's different thing).
